THE miniature ponies and trick dogs are proving a hit with Hunter children attending Webers Circus.The circus, which last visited the Hunter Region two years ago, boasts 25 performers and is proud to claim it does not feature wild animals.
Webers, one of the long-standing names in the business, finished a stint of shows at Swansea yesterday and will open at Richardson Park, Hamilton on Thursday.
The acts include a Colombian who defies the wheel of death, swinging and somersaulting acrobats, miniature ponies, trick dogs and clowns. The artists come from a wide and diverse background of circus families and countries including Colombia, Germany, Hungary, New Zealand and Australia.
Webers Circus is run by owners Rudy and Natalie Weber who have worked on hit musicals Cats, Grease, Shout and Long Way to the Top. They also co-produced and toured The Great Moscow Circus and Cirque Le Voyageuse.
The Webers came to Australia in 1972 from Germany.
Their family’s circus connection goes back six generations, with three generations currently here in Australia.
